Price comparisons

I looked at a new Jay Feather 25BH that dealer was firm on at $22k plus 600 prep. (MSRP with options I wanted & destination chg $29,087.) It had a couple of minor build flaws that the dealer would take care of. Also checked out a new Winnebago Minnie 2455bhs with MSRP $31,000/ $24k sale price. I liked the build of the Minnie (it looked flawless & very bright inside) but like the floor plan of the 25BH because it has a sofa plus dinette. The Minnie only has a U shaped dinette. Looking at price & was hoping to get a better deal on the Jayco like $19k but it may not happen. Does anyone think I am underpricing the Jayco??

19k might not be reachable; 20,100 would be a good deal IMO. $20,361, 70% of MSRP, is the most I would pay if I HAD to have it. But those figures are discounting the destination charges, which might not be fair to the dealer. (Did I just say that???) Maybe 19,500 + transportation. Work on 30% off MSRP alone. Check with a non brick and mortar dealer. And the 600 prep charge in my mind is like the similar numbers car dealers like to add to all deals after the fact, which is clearly nothing more than additional dealer profit. Good luck!

Well to answer my own question I did get quote for $19,034.00 from a builder in Indiana for the exact model & options as the one in question. Funny thing that was the price I had offered to buy it at, but was willing to pay for the Destination fees ($1800)

So your will to pay about $2100 from an out of state dealer (including the $1800 destination charge)? At $22000 your not too far off. If you are financing the RV it might be worth it to go with the local dealer. Maybe try to negotiate the $600 prep fee.

My local dealer rubbed me the wrong way so I went an hour south and felt much better with them (the price was also right).

No Out of state dealer will charge $19K plus $150 doc fee. I am willing to drive & pick it up at that location in order to save thousands of dollars. No big deal for me as I have all the time to do it (retired). I will convey the price quote I got from the local dealer to give him a shot & see if he will drop the price close enough to my comfort zone.
